Moon Delivery

Jeff Bezos’ (Amazon Boss) Blue Origin (Amazon’s Spaceflight company) plan to develop a spacecraft called Blue Moon, to launch an Amazon like service to deliver the equipment needed to establish human settlements on the moon by the mid 2020’s, with the craft apparently carrying up to 10,000lbs of cargo.

Blue Origin has experience launching its own “New Shepard” rockets into space, the Blue Moon is apparently similar and will launch vertically and land on the moon’s south pole, as it has continuous sunlight which the spacecraft’s solar panels will utilise, this side of the moon is also rich in water, which the Blue Moon would transform into rocket fuel.

Bezos hopes the mission will launch in 2020, but only with the help of NASA.
